Gas Can Holder

Had been doing my research and decided the asked amount for a spare tire mounted gas can assembly was unreasonably priced. Decided to fabricate my own holder, with a few modifications to both add strength and ease removal over the models I have seen.

Started out with some 16 guage squeare tubing and some creative cutting.



Cage welded and cross braces tacked in place. Perfect fit for a 5 gallon Blitz metal gas can.



Finished product before polishing welds and paint application.



Final finished product, minus installed strap and turnbuckle to hold can down.



***************
Updated with pictures of the turnbuckle and can in palce

Re: Gas Can Holder

That is way cool. I wish at times I could do something like that. Even be able to make something out of metal would be nice. Good Job. You going to make a bunch and sell them?

Nice work!
The best way to learn how to weld is.......to weld. Get a small MIG welder and have at it.

Can you give me a link to a small Mig welder? See, I wouldn't know what a small, med, large welder would be

And what stock can I weld with a 'small' Mig welder

Thanks in advance

I was thinking about it, but the amount of care and detail I put into the things I fabricate it would not be cost effective, as I could not sell it for the amount of time I put into it. Plus, I like the idea of having mods all over my car I know no one else has... selfish much???
